Is it worth buying the footswitch for the "fat" button on the Blues Jr? Give opinions please

I know... its a retarded and subjective question so just go along with it...

No.

The fat button is a bass boost. It makes your bass go to 11. Its either something you have on or you don't

I would think not. Personally I don't think I've taken it off Fat since I bought it, and that was over a year ago. I use it heavily as well.

You dont need it, just make sure to turn fat off when you have both volumes over 8.

I don't think I've ever used the FAT button, it seems to sacrifice tone for gain. And besides that, the footswitch is a ludicrous price for what's basically a standard 1/4" latching. Never bothered trying, but I wouldn't be surprised if you could use any generic switch instead...

thats a retarded and subjective question

i dont think its retarded
come on its like what the **** you cant decide for your self wether you need a pedal to switch channels or to add some boost to your amp
I think his question was retarded
its like saying "do i need a chorus pedal"
well what do you think do you like the sound of chorus
well if you do i advice you buy it

but if you get to which one one is bettor
or whats cheaper id understand
but this guy is completely lost

but whatever he did state it in the thread so **** it

i just like to ramble

I find that you can't play distorted chords with the fat switch on.
